Who can enter?

The art contest is open to all traditionally (parent directed, private) homeschooled students between the ages of 10 to 18.

What kind of art work can I enter?

The art contest will be divided into 2 categories (artwork MUST fit into one of these categories):

Category B: photography.

What are the artwork guidelines?

Artwork must be the participant’s own original work and must be mounted on a mat and no larger than 20”x20” (including mat).  NO FRAMED ARTWORK WILL BE ACCEPTED!  (mounting is the way a print is attached to a support board; matting is the paperboard window which surrounds the print)

Will my artwork be displayed at the Convention?

How will my artwork be judged?

The final judging will take place at the Convention.  Artwork will be judged on artistic skill, creativity and overall presentation.
